Peterlee man's feet govern wedding planning

The wedding planning
process for one Peterlee man included an unusual requirement - he needed an operation on his feet to allow him to walk down the aisle.
Shane Marsh's marriage to 23-year-old Sarah Garside in August of last year was jeopardised by his "hammer toe" condition, reports the Sunderland Echo.
While he was able to undergo an operation to insert metal rods into his toes and straighten them enough for him to walk down the aisle, this took a chunk out of his wedding planning
In all, Mr Marsh spent four weeks housebound before he was able to walk on the repaired toes - and ultimately walk down the aisle to marry his sweetheart.
However, he has made great strides since his big day, now launching a dog-walking service.
Mr Marsh's unusual experience contrasts with a recent report in the Times that noted one way in which people can get married without their feet even touching the ground.
The publication explained that, in Las Vegas, it is possible to marry in an aeroplane before jumping out and skydiving to Earth as man and wife.
